Providing just the right amount of sleek, understated design with an easy-to-clean surface, the glass backsplash is becoming increasingly popular in many kitchen designs. Not only are spills easy to wipe off from a glass backsplash, but the surface also doesn't allow mold growth, making it a perfect option for a kitchen area.

Glass backsplashes are typically designed in two ways, either as a complete sheet of glass that has been cut to fit a specific area or as tiles that are installed in a similar manner to that of ceramic tiles. Using mortar and a flat edge trowel, these tiles can be easily installed in a few hours.

Glass backsplash material comes in a wide range of colors, from muted tones to bright, vibrant design options. Consider pairing a pale blue glass tile backsplash with a contemporary kitchen that features dark wood cabinetry and crisp white countertops. If your kitchen has a more vintage vibe, then you might want to mix together a range of colorful recycled glass tiles to give it a splash of varied colors.

Simple, flat glass backsplashes can also provide an elegant focal point that suits modern kitchens with a classic look. The end result is subtle yet captivating, rounding out the design of the kitchen area.
